Ad Server & Page Setup
Your integration documents will have information similar to the below but it will have specific references to your placement keys. This guide will have more generic information about how to integrate but we recommend you use the instructions on the page outlined above.
1. Create Line Item or equivalent in your ad server
- Define Ad Unit dimensions as desired, but we recommend a 1x1 dimension to constrain traditional display line items from serving to your native ad unit if this is a native only slot.
- Use the following code in the creative section of the line item setup with your placement key in the place of "INSERT_PLACEMENT_KEY_HERE" on the snippet below.
<div data-str-native-key="INSERT_PLACEMENT_KEY_HERE" style="display: none;"></div>
2. Web Page Setup
- Add Sharethrough's core technology to the page <head> (see below)
- This script tag should only be on the page once regardless of integration strategy
- For optimimal performance, SFP.js should be placed high within the <head>
Verify Your Integration
Navigate to your test page with any device (e.g. mobile, tablet, desktop) and look for Sharethrough's default creative (seen below). Once the template is on page, your integration is successful!
